It is my privilege to practice medicine and to work with a staff that is equally committed to patient care.  My practice is subspecialized to address complex female urologic issues, urologic issues related to neurologic disorders, male incontinence and retention.  These issues can dramatically affect a person's quality of life.  I have dedicated myself to do everything in my ability to improve my patient's lives. "
